“The people I met at the Bona School changed my life.” – Ben Suer

"I am starting a floor cleaning and recoat business in upstate N.Y.. Your training in Manalapan N.J. was fantastic! Everyone in your company is so knowledgable and helpful. I traveled six hours to attend the training and stayed at the Hampton Inn. It was worth ten times the price I paid to attend. I can not say enough about how pleased I am. I was not sure before attending, if I was going to get into this line of work, but your class and company convinced me. I have ordered a Bona Deep Clean Machine and Bona Buffer. I am going to be using Bona products exclusively. Mike Overy has already been helpful in working with my local distributor in Rochester N.Y. . Thank you again. My business name is going to be Refresh Floor Care. I am a Bona user and promoter for life!" - Leon Maiolo
